Phew... That was a lot of work. Homemade pumpkin cupcakes with chocolate cream cheese frosting. It was really hard to get the chocolate frosting right... The cocoa powder made it light brown -- very unattractive. I ended up melting a bag of chocolate chips and adding it in. It worked. The decorations are a bit over the top, but isn't that what six year olds love?

We enjoyed another super-fun, fall weekend in Eugene. The Ducks played a great game against Stanford (and won!). ESPN's Game Day crew came to town. We stayed at a hotel with a great pool and had a little pool party with friends. We rode our bikes around town and ate lots and lots of our favorite Eugene treats... Newman's fish & chips and VooDoo Doughnuts. Looks like we will all be on a diet this week ;-)
